Also, Loss of Thousands of Americans In Battle and By Typhus Fever. An army of 600,000 men; a cost of $2,000,000 a day; a total of $450,000,000 the first year; almost certain loss of 260,000 Americans by death or injury in battle and by typhus fever. That, say our experts on Mexican affairs, will be the result of any American attempt to intervene in Mexico-—to invade and occupy that country. For invasion means occupation; the mountains and valleys must be policed to prevent the descent of brigands from secret fastnesses.
